Amazing experience. I'm afraid of heights and this was a complete adrenaline rush. Wasn't the the most tiring hike, but the view at the end is worth the trip.

It's not the longest hike in Zion National Park, but in some ways it's the most hair-raising. Climb the canyon walls on a gentle switchbacking trail and you think this hike is gonna be easy. Then you get to what locals & rangers call "Chicken-Out Point," where you can see eroded footfalls twisting across sandstone out to a narrow point overlooking the entire canyon. Bring gloves to get a better grip on the cables that have been installed along the last section of the trail to help you keep your balance.

This is the trial I didn't conquer but will in the future.
Even though I didn't make it to the very top, I made it through the first set of chains and the view was spectacular (my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JPvjao2Go8). Actually, the view was spectacular all the way up. So many rich colors for the senses. I loved every minute up and every minute down. Met some great people too.
Next time, I will conquer you!
I don't really fear heights but I fear dying and using chains to climb up is something I need to mentally prepare for. My plan of action is to go early morning--where I don't have to worry about people behind me and feeling rush.
Definitely don't want to feel rush when there are drop-offs on both sides, your main support is chains, and the foothold is slanted (random Youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CIN-N5cNwk&feature=related).

Like Halfdome in Yosemite, but easier, Angel's landing is pretty much a hike straight uphill from the get-go. Once you reach the ridge, it's then a much easier hike, but at this point the difficulty is replaced with a hair-raising hike along the narrow trail that leads to the mountain's peak. The park service has installed chains to help climbers get to the peak, so I'd highly recommend hanging onto them while you go for the top. Have fun!
